Taylor Swift - The Story Of Us Chords

[intro] x2
B  C#m  Esus2  A

[verse 1]
E                   B                          A
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us
                                        E
How we met and the sparks flew instantly
             B                           A
People would say, "They're the lucky ones"
E                 B                        A
I used to know my place was a spot next to you
                                            E
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
                           B                       A
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on

B                  C#m
Oh, a simple complication
          A              E
Miscommunications lead to fall out
A
So many things that I wish you knew
B
So many walls that I can't break through

[chorus]
E                Bsus4              A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
                      E
And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4             A
And I'm dying to know is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m                   B                    E
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A
When it all broke down
        C#m                  B                  A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now-  Next chapter

B  C#m  Esus2  A

[verse 2]
E                    B
How'd we end up this way?
                 A
See me nervously pulling at my clothes
                       E
And trying to look busy
                      B               A
And you're doing your best to avoid me

E                         B                          A
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
                                            E
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
                  B                               A
But you held your pride like you should have held me

B                           C#m
Oh, we're scared to see the ending
           A                  E
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
A
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
A
I've never heard silence quite this loud

[chorus]
E                Bsus4              A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
                      E
And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4              A
And I'm dying to know is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m                   B                    E
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A
When it all broke down
        C#m                  B                  A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

B  C#m  Esus2  A
B  C#m  Esus2  A

[verse 3]
E                            A
    This is looking like a contest

Of who can act like they care less
C#m                          B              A
But I liked it better when you were on my side
E
The battle's in your hands now
A
But I would lay my armor down
   C#m              B                A
If you'd say you'd rather love than fight

A
So many things that you wish I knew
        A
But the story of us might be ending soon

[chorus]
D
  Now I'm standing alone
 Bsus4        A
      In a crowded room  and we're not speaking
        E        Bsus4              A
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
                  A
Like it's killing me?
C#m                   B                    E
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  A
When it all broke down
        C#m
And the story of us
        B                  A                E  Bsus4
Looks a lot like a tragedy now, now, no-----ow

[outro]
A                        E
   And we're not speaking
                 Bsus4
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
A
Like it's killing me?
C#m                   B                    E
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                    A
'Cause we're go-ing down
        C#m                  B                  A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
